Actor Brad Renfro was snubbed at Sunday's Academy Awards when organizers left him out of a montage of stars who died in the past year.

Renfro was found dead from a drug overdose in Los Angeles in January at age 25.

But he was overlooked on a list of 98 movie industry people, which included everyone from actors and directors to public relations people.

A statement from the Motion Picture Academy of America claims, "It is simply not possible to include everyone in that segment."

But a friend of the late star of The ClientApt Pupil and Sleepers tells TMZ.com, "It's unbelievable and disgusting."
